Hello,

That does not sound normal. Can you please shoot a quick video with your phone so we can hear the noise? That would be great. You can upload it here with your response. Also check the oil level and change it if needs it. Here is how you can replace the VVT in the diagrams below. It also shows how to test the unit. Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.

Hello Ken.

That's what I think, it doesn't suppose to make that very loud sound.
I'll make the test when the customer bring me the car again and i'll make the video and the results of the test and post it.
Thanks and stay safe.
